That would leave one or two posts a day.

It is a difficult area to get a good picture of because of the angle and shadows. I can't really tell, but looking at your picture of the PL on this site it appears mine curves slightly inward at the bottom and yours does not?

just some ramblin' thoughts as i pass this way...

Francesca, On measuring the wheel well? I could not even begin to give any numbers that would make sense. It curves inward and nothing i shared would help any one ponder what is going on.

Egg-Family... my apologies if anything i have said has offended or come off as wanting to stir-up-trouble (and i'll even include Mark and hopefully not put words in his mouth)... In no way is anything in this post/thread intended to suggest Chandler or Parkliner crew inability to rise to the challenge and solve this. I think the beauty of this forum is that many heads can get together and brainstorm, which i believe is happening (elephant trunk included . Chandler has not seen this arise yet, so maybe someone's Ah-Ha moment could point to a solution.

I agree. I haven't ever stated (or even thought) that Parkliner isn't willing or able to resolve this problem. I did have concerns about getting their attention, but that has been resolved and they are now involved. After meeting Chandler, I'm 100% convinced a solution will be found.

That said, this forum has many folks with experience, knowledge, and abilities...a solution just might come from here too. At worst, I gained the emails that got me in contact with Parkliner, alerted others (like Thom) to the issue, and I've learned some things about axles. All good.

I would still steer someone towards Parkliner in a heartbeat!

I seem to have arrived late to the banquet. I just grabbed a flashlight and went out and checked ParkLiner #34. With ~920 miles on the unit, it seems that I, too have the same problem. Seems somewhat worse on the street side where the white gel coat is completely worn through exposing the pink substrate below. I just emailed Chandler and Cameron to advise that I am experiencing the same problem described by others. Will keep you advised as to the response. Hopefully, ParkLiner will come up with a satisfactory resolution to this situation. We are otherwise thrilled with our PL and want to see this enterprise succeed.

Mark & Brian... thanks for sharing some PL Luv. I wish it weren't so, but i guess we are in good company. This is actually sort of a positive, because surely this is something that has Chandler's full attention with three of us reporting the same situation.

I'm thinking something along the lines of either a tire-size swap or a tweak/adjustment to the angle on the Dexter axle.

Do you know how the axle is attached? Welded or bolted?

On the trip back from Gibsonville I had a woman at a gas station ask me about it, and when it was parked out in front of my house that first day a neighbor came out to take a look. I was giving the neighbor a walk-through and felt like I was making a sales pitch since I was talking about all the good points on the trailer! Funny.

Just checked... it is welded in 10 points and looks a part of the frame/trailer. nicely done...but not coming out easy!

I wonder how they adjust them? Pull out the guts? Replace? just random ponderings that don't mean a thing either way It'll get done. I'll do some reading just for fun before watching some SciFi with Cari.

I think this is helpful...#34, #35 and mine (which sorry, I don't know which number I am!). Maybe it will help PL track it back to something that changed in their production of the units. Even outside of the solution they will surely come to, I am also quite certain they will want to know the initial start/source of the problem so they can ensure all impacted units are fixed.

Mark, Cameron will know your hull number.
As an FYI, mine was finished late in the day on Tuesday April 9th as #35
